every quentin tarantino character ranked

Every single Quentin Tarantino character is full of life. Look to the fringes of his films and you’ll find supporting characters with more personality and spark than leading characters in other movies. Minor characters, who appear for a single scene and vanish forever, are given lines of dialogue that would be the highlight of other films. Few living filmmakers stack their films with so many memorable names and faces.

And with his new movie, The Hateful Eight, about to hit theaters, it’s time to something really, really dumb: rank every single Quentin Tarantino character of any significance from worst to best. Bear with me. This is going to take awhile.

THE HATEFUL EIGHT

The Weinstein Company is giving cinephiles a chance to start 2016 off right. The Hateful Eight is now set to roll into theaters January 1, a week earlier than its previously announced January 8 wide release date.

Of course, that still means much of the country has three weeks until they can see Quentin Tarantino‘s latest. So while we wait, here’s an interesting bit of trivia to consider: Did you know that The Hateful Eight originally started out as a Django Unchained sequel? Find out why Tarantino ultimately decided not to make it one after the jump.  Read More »

Matthew McConaughey fled across the desert and Idris Elba followed.

It’s the kind of left-field casting that is almost disgustingly perfect – why didn’t anyone think of this sooner? Idris Elba, the star of Luther, Pacific Rim, and Beasts of No Nation is the current frontrunner to play Roland Deschain in director Nikolaj Arcel‘s adaptation of The Gunslinger, the first novel in Stephen King‘s The Dark Tower series. If he does sign on the dotted line, he’ll be joining a cast that already includes Matthew McConaughey, who is set to play the mysterious “man in black,” the chief villain of the series and the Big Bad of the entire Stephen King universe.

jane got a gun trailer

Jane Got a Gun did not have the smoothest of productions, to say the least. When Lynne Ramsay (We Need to Talk About Kevin) exited the film on the first day of principal photography, co-star Jude Law (Spy) left with her. A lawsuit followed Ramsay’s sudden departure, and there was a whole lot of “he said, she said” going on. Ultimately, director Gavin O’Connor stepped in and possibly saved the day, reuniting with a frequent collaborator, Noah Emmerich (The Americans), and Joel Edgerton (The Gift) — the star of his last film, Warrior.

After the jump, check out the latest Jane Got a Gun trailer:

The Hateful Eight Clips

Even though plenty of people are anxious to see Star Wars: The Force Awakens in 12 days, let’s not forget that one week later we’ll get to see another of the highly anticipated films of 2015. Quentin Tarantino has his eighth film getting a unique release beginning on December 25th with The Hateful Eight getting a 70mm roadshow release (with specific location details yet to be officially revealed) that includes extra footage and an intermission.

But if you’re a little impatient, you can watch eight minutes of The Hateful Eight clips right now to hold you over until Chtistmas gets here. It certainly won’t look as good as it will on a 70mm projection, but it’s the best we can do. Read More »

Quentin Tarantino in Django Unchained

Quentin Tarantino is kind of notorious for talking up projects that never actually get made. Kill Bill Vol. 3 might be the most famous example, but there’s also the Vega Brothers spinoff, Killer Crow, a 1930s gangster flick… the list goes on.

So you may want to take it with a grain of salt when we tell you he’s been going on again about Forty Lashes Less One, an adaptation of the novel by Elmore Leonard. The new twist, however, is that he’s not necessarily eyeing it as a movie — he thinks he might turn it into a TV series instead. Get the latest on the Quentin Tarantino Forty Lashes Less One project after the jump.  Read More »
